CHRISTOPHER RUDDY ON THE CLINTON-GORE LEGACY …a hidden problem for the Bush administration is that the U.S. government, including our Pentagon, CIA and other agencies, is still largely run by appointees of Clinton-Gore or the career military and bureaucrats Clinton-Gore promoted through the ranks. The same people that left us vulnerable to the acts of Sept. 11 are now claiming they will solve our future problems. I believe long term good will only come out of this catastrophe if we learn from the events of Sept. 11, hold accountable the people in our government who failed us, and make necessary reforms. If we don’t do this, it is doubtful we will exist as a great nation ten years hence. – Oct. 1, 2001
